Warning, this is a picture heavy post. You have been warned! 🙂
I don’t know about you, but this is the only truly “chemistry” or “science” themed quilt that I am aware of. It took some hunting skills, but once I found the mid-century reproduction atomic prints, I knew I could pull this off! With the “geek chic” style that is coming of age (an appreciation of intellect, go figure), it was fun to round out this little fabric collection.
At first, I was concerned that the overall effect would be a bit somber for welcoming a little bundle of joy, but once I got it all put together, it really worked. Of course the brightly colored liquid in the various flasks do help to lighten the mood, overall.
The best part is that when I finished the project and mailed it off to the Mommy and Daddy to be, they loved it! He is a high level chemist and she is a nurse. They asked for a chemistry or science vibe, and I think I pulled it off. Love my geeky friends!
What have YOU been quilting lately?
Till next time,
